SUPER QUOTE — Abraham Lincoln on Edwin M Stanton
“He is the rock on the beach of our national ocean against which the breakers dash and roar, dash and roar without ceasing. He fights back the angry waters and prevents them from undermining and overwhelming the land. Gentlemen, I do not see how he survives, why he is not crushed and torn to
pieces. Without him I should be destroyed.” — President Abraham Lincoln On Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton
Masterful rhetoric! I lifted the quote from the incredible James L. Swanson book, “Manhunt: The 12 Day Chase For Lincoln’s Killer”.
